Emilia Babilia

Week 21 & 22

Symptoms? Back pain almost every day, especially upper back. Increased appetite. My linea nigra (the black line on my tummy going from my belly button downwards) is starting to show and my belly button is getting shallower each day!

Week 21 – 137.4 lb ->  138.6 lb
Week 22 – 138.6 lb ->  139.8 lb

Change in dietary habits? Not much other than being able to eat more 🙂

Exercises? I decided to stop teaching my Tuesday classes so it’s just pole every Thursday now. My arms must be getting so weak…I should probably maintain my strength by doing a few push-ups every day.

Sleep? Same.

Baby movements?
Emilia seems to be awake and active every few hours. I especially like how she kicks when I eat food that I love. I like to think that she’s kicking because she’s loving what I’m eating too 😛

At 22 week 2 days, we saw her pushing my tummy!! It was so sudden and fast and I’m so glad Andres was there to see it when it happened!

At week 21 Emilia is as long as a carrot from head to toe.
At week 22 Emilia is about the size of a spaghetti squash.

Anything else special happened this week?
We went on a little babymoon trip in Chicago, you can read more about it here. 🙂
